Consuming Issues: Is there another way to get a good education without paying high fees? Listen too Dr Kairen Cullen
The price of education in the UK continues to make headlines. Students are having to pay extortionate prices for university. They are leaving with a mountain of debt. And with prices looking likely to increase in the autumn of 2017, under new Tory legislation, is there a cheaper way to learn new skills without paying over the odds? Well, one-way people are doing it is by turning to digital tools, and apps rather than pay for expert advice or services. In fact, over 40% have done this, according to Halifax Insurance. Georgie Frost was joined by Dr Kairen Cullen, and Educational Psychologist.
